Sainapat’s Srī Gur Sobhā
In Srī Gur Sobhā, Sainapat focuses on the Khalsa of Guru Gobind Singh and chronicles the battles and expeditions based on the Bachittar Nātak. In his account of the Khalsa, Sainapat declared that the Masands were to be discarded and that all Sikhs were to be linked with the Guru directly. Srī Gur Sobhā gives an account of the second battle of Anandpur, the transformation of the sangat into the Khalsa as a political community, the relevance of Sikh theology for the life of the Sikhs, the battles of Guru Gobind Singh before the institution of the Khalsa, the battles of Guru Gobind Singh, and Guru Gobind Singh’s attitude towards and relations with the contemporary Mughal emperors. Despite the death of Guru Gobind Singh, Sainapat declares that the future triumph of the Khalsa is also his triumph.
